A successful female DJ refuses to let a few romantic catastrophes keep her down in award-winning author April Sinclair's dazzlingly soulful novel that was hailed as "a Bridget Jones's Diary for black women" by the New York Times Book Review.
Daphne "Dee Dee" Dupree has arrived at age 41 with a career she loves but a romantic life she doesn't. Insecure about her weight and protective of her often-broken heart, Dee Dee is an expert at hiding her inward struggles from the thousands of Chicago residents who hear her on the radio every night. A successful, charismatic DJ for the local blues station, Dee Dee is still looking for the type of love she's missed since her divorce.
After a traumatic event at work, Dee Dee meets Skylar, a union mediator who could be just what she's looking for - if only there weren't so many obstacles in their way. Meanwhile, Dee Dee's coworker, Jade, is nearing her own divorce; her best friend, Sharon, has come out of the closet; and Sharon's teenage daughter is dangerously close to a breakdown. As Dee Dee works to ease the problems of her friends, she finally faces her own troubles - both old and new - in this uplifting, thought-provoking novel.

There were several funny and entertaining tidbits, but the storyline lacked purpose. All in all its a nice ride as long as you're not expecting too much at your destination.
